About Lucia

Lucia Dunn grew up in a small village in Northern Italy, she studied architecture at the University of Venice and as an Interior Designer has a passion for fabrics, interiors and colour.

Lucia is a Stylecraft Blogstar, with her own blog - Lucia’s Figtree, and this year designed a new crochet along project for Crochet Now called Rise and Shine!

In conjunction with Poppy’s of Holmfirth Lucia has also designed the fabulous Walrus Blanket, inspired by Planet Earth 2, as well as a beautiful shawl named after her daughter Valentina.

Lucia’s re-colouring of Janie Crow’s original Persian Tiles blanket pattern known as “Eastern Jewels” has proved enormously popular too.

Course content

Lucia will be exploring the art of crochet planning, creating mood boards, selecting yarn, making test swatches and choosing and using the different colour combinations.

There will be plenty of sample yarn to experiment with, and a £25* voucher to spend in the Studio Shop is included as well.

This course will be based on creating a new specially commissioned Christmas Shawl, places are limited to allow everyone to have some personal tuition time with Luica.

What should I bring?

Please bring your crochet hook selection, scissors and any other esssential items you normally use for your crochet at home.

Lucia would also like you to bring some samples of colours or shapes that have inspired you, anything you like, it might be some crochet work, holiday photos, jewellery, favourite garment or an ornament.

A sketchpad or notepad with pens or pencils for notes and sketches would also be useful to remember all those tip and tricks, and a digital camera or camera-phone to capture yarn colours or designs for future reference.


Please note overnight accommodation is not provided but there are several excellent Bed and Breakfast establishments in and around Holmfirth, Meltham and Slaithwaite. 

If you are travelling by train the nearest station is Slaithwaite - HD7 5EB.

Ample car parking is available on site directly opposite the venue.


Please let us know by email before the course if you have any special dietary requirements, food or drink allergies or intolerances so that we can cater accordingly. 

Owing to the age and character of the venue there are a few steps in and out of the Studio and Retreat rooms so they are not ideally suited for wheel chairs, please contact us in advance if you have any concerns over access.
